Fee Fishing Ponds and Lakes

Rattle TrapThere are numerous private ponds and small lakes throughout the state that charge either a fee to fish, a fee per pound of fish or a fee only if you catch fish. These lakes, known as catch-out facilities or pay lakes, are usually kept stocked on a regular basis and offer a good opportunity as a place to take children, because fish are more easily caught. Since many of these areas may be opened seasonally and some information is subject to change, please call ahead before traveling to the place in question.

Green GrubThese lakes are being provided as a convenience to the public that may choose to fish these private waters. The information is offered with the understanding that no discrimination is intended as there may be other fee fishing areas that do not appear here. No endorsements are implied. Inclusion of sites or locations does not imply Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency's approval of their product or service to the exclusion of others that may be similar, nor does it guarantee or warrant the standard of the products or service offered.
